The Philadelphia 76ers Tickets One Of The Professional Team In

UnCategorized The Philadelphia 76ers are a professional basketball team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They play in the Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). In 1946, Danny Biasone sent a 5,000 check to the National Basketball League offices in Chicago, and the Syracuse Nationals became the largely Midwest-based league’s easternmost team. In 1949, the Nationals were one of seven NBL teams that merged with the Basketball Association of America to form the NBA. In 1955, the Nationals (led by forward Dolph Schayes) won the NBA championship. On July 9, 2008, the 76ers signed power forward Elton Brand to a 5 year, 79.795 million-dollar contract. They were able to sign him after trading Rodney Carney , and renouncing their rights to all their unrestricted free agents.Brand had originally opted out of his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, looking to re-sign with them. But Elton saw that the 76ers offered him more money (he regarded their offer as the Philly-Max), and a better chance at winning an NBA Championship playing in the Eastern Conference. This move has been the subject of controversy since there were rumors that he and Baron Davis had made a friendly agreement to play together for the Clippers. Later on the team signed free agent point guard Royal Ivey of the Milwaukee Bucks, Kareem Rush from the Indiana Pacers, and then signed former Sixer Theo Ratliff after Jason Smith’s injury. Donyell Marshall was signed on September 2, 2008 after he stated that he wanted to go back home to his agent and end his career in the city of brotherly love.Rush, Ivey, Ratliff and Marshall were all paid the veteran’s minimum wage because of their one-dimensional play, but they were to be contributors to a team on the rise. During the offseason they also re-signed valuable restricted free agents Louis Williams for 5 yr/25 million and Andre Iguodala for 6 yr/$80 million. However, the Sixers couldn’t find the form that pushed them to the playoffs last year. The Sixers started the year with an uninspiring 9/14 record before firing head coach Maurice Cheeks on December 13. Assistant GM Tony DiLeo took over and the Sixers gradually improved. They finished the season with a 41/41 record, with a 32/27 record under DiLeo. Brand’s first season with the Sixers ended early with a right shoulder injury that required surgery. Despite the loss of Brand, the Sixers earned a playoff berth with a 90/95 win against the Detroit Pistons on April 4, 2009, at home. In the first round, they faced the Orlando Magic. Three of the first four games of the series provided late-game heroics. Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young made game-winning shots in Games 1 and 3, respectively, while Orlando’s Hedo Turkoglu provided the game-winner in Game 4. Just like in the previous year’s playoffs, the Sixers led 2/1 after three games. But the Magic went on to win three straight to eliminate the Sixers from the playoffs. It was also during the season that the Sixers played one home game at their old home, the Wachovia Spectrum. The Sixers won 104/101 over the Chicago Bulls on March 13, 2009. The game was played to provide the final curtain call on the Spectrum, which was scheduled to be imploded on New Year’s Eve 2009. For the 2009 offseason, the Sixers drafted UCLA point guard Jrue Holiday with the 17th pick. The Sixers also traded power forward Reggie Evans to the Toronto Raptors for a three-point specialist, small forward Jason Kapono, who had won back-to-back three-point shootouts in 2007 and 2008.[17] This offseason also marked the return of the 1977/1997 76ers logo, along with a redesigned court and new uniforms updating the 1982/83 jerseys. On May 18, 2010, the NBA Draft Lottery was held. With the 76ers holding the sixth-best odds at receiving the top pick, they managed to land the second pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, beating out the Warriors, Kings, Timberwolves, and .s, who all had better odds. Two days later, Doug Collins was named head coach of the 76ers. Collins previously played for the Sixers, and coached the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, and the Washington Wizards. On June 24 they picked Evan Turner with the second overall pick of the draft. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
